Art

 

I’ve always thought as visually as verbally, and communicated through illustration, photography and graphic design.┬áMy most personal and experimental work has been my Christmas cards, which I have been designing since childhood and selling for many years. I’ve also designed posters, leaflets, infographics, memes, and a historical map of Edinburgh; and I occasionally take commissions.
